Title: The PLAYground: Deaf and Hard of Hearing Virtual STEM Summer Camp

Jason White

The PLAYground summer camp was developed by the Playful Learning Lab at the University of St. Thomas, an undergraduate research group with a focus on learning through play. Through a partnership with a local deaf school, the PLAYground was designed to provide content to the deaf and hard of hearing community. Over the course of 8 weeks, 85 students are provided with materials that correspond with activities on the website. Each activity is accompanied with a lesson plan and video, each in English, American Sign Language, Spanish, and Arabic. Students participating in the PLAYground also meet with camp counselors via Zoom weekly to build community and create together.
